1754 Conquest is on coolstuffinc's preorder list. I can't find an entry for it on the geek. Is there any info available anywhere?

Adam, the game is about the French and Indian War. It will be based off the 1812/1775 "Birth of America" series.

Almost completed, if all goes well early next year it will be shipped to the US.

I'll get it posted onto BGG shortly after GenCon. Thanks for the reminder!

Tim

Avoid Academy Games. Do not kickstart or preorder any games from them and seriously consider if you want to buy anything from them at all. If they are not outright frauds, they are fucking incompetent and useless. AVOID!

You sound a bit bitter at something...is everything ok? Would you like to have a chat to vent some of your frustration?

Uwe has been upfront about the problems Academy has had and seems to be addressing them. He has hired more people and says he is trying to improve communication and production timelines. People make mistakes and we should be understanding. The quality of their games outweighs the snafus in my opinion. I don't preorder games unless I think they will sellout anyways.

This guy has been throwing a tantrum and rating all of their games a 1 because he has not gotten his Mare Nostrum kickstarter yet. Bit of a * move.

I have almost every game and expansion released be Academy Games. Some of them I have waited quite a while for (Mare Nostrum, Guadalcanal and Fief only arrived last week) but I always know that they will arrive eventually and that the games and components will be of the highest quality.

Yeah I have loved everything that I've bought from them. BUT I've never pre-ordered or kickstarted anything, I've only bought retail.

We believe the games are chugging their way through Canada right now. If all goes well, we hope to start shipping next week.
